There is no geographical limitation for runners.
In a statement, the Resumption of Racing Group said, “To support this plan, by Monday the sport will publish a timetable outlining the preparatory steps we need to work together prior to the return of racing to ensure that we are ready to meet that date.
“This includes an overview of the processes and protocols to be agreed and communicated across the industry, and we will ask for your help and support to ensure that this preparatory preparation is completed as soon as possible.

“We know that significant changes have already been made across the industry – at training sites, stud farms and racecourse – to ensure strict adherence to social distance measures and to help reduce the spread of the virus.

Likewise, strict measures are applied to race days, and the racecourses work with the BHA’s Course Inspectors to develop and implement the necessary requirements to provide the safest possible environment for all participants.
This includes planning how a race day will function – including getting in and out and movement around the site – while maintaining social distance.
“The details of these changes will be communicated to the industry in a timely manner, to ensure that participants, staff and officials understand the requirements that have been put in place and how they will apply during a race day.
“As explained in previous updates, attending each meeting will be limited to only the personnel required to deliver the fixture, with the number that can attend is determined by the then current public health restrictions.
“These presence restrictions will be continuously reviewed and gradually relaxed to allow connections, including owners and other race day staff, in accordance with government guidelines.”
